I think we all need a little distraction from the stress of Election Day, what do you think? And what better way to do that for at least a few minutes than with the second most important day of November – the release of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on the 25th?
We’re rolling out both new and old Gilmore Girls related posts and today we’re bringing back a post dedicated to the underappreciated heroes of the GG world: all the tertiary characters who may have had little screen time but were never forgotten. Will Tobin, the night manager at the Independence Inn, be in the revival and suddenly be working at the Dragonfly? How about Henry Cho, Lane’s first “boyfriend”? Is dog Paul Anka the real dog Paul Anka in the new episodes? WHAT HAPPENED TO JACKSON’S COUSIN BEAU AKA A PRE-PARKS AND REC NICK OFFERMAN??? Is he still a sex-addicted freak??
Last June, it was a pre-revival world, so we made our guesses on where these random characters would be if we checked in on them in present day. Click the link below to find out where these folks landed in the GG alternate universe. And we’ll check back in tomorrow – if the country hasn’t imploded by then.
Then: An adorable, yet rather ill-advised adoption on Lorelai’s behalf, she welcomed the weird and quirky dog Paul Anka into her life while she and Rory had The Fight.
Now: Surprisingly, still alive.
SOOKIE’S THIRD KID
Then: WAS A FETUS IN SEASON 7, NEVER MENTIONED AGAIN.
Now: WE DON’T KNOW. WE WILL MAYBE NEVER KNOW.*
